Have You Registered Your SIM Card ?
For all our readers information, ( As received from SMS)
As per the directives of the Communication and Information Technology Commission, please note that starting 12/9/1433 H a new mechanism for prepaid recharge SIM will be applied by entering your ID or iqama number and which should be the same ID/iqamah number registered while activating the service. To ensure that your information is correct and up to date, please visit your nearest network provider.
We therefore advise our readers to make sure that their number is connected with their Iqama number so that your service will not be halt. I believe this is a also a protection for all users. Users will now be listed in STC, Mobily or Zain and for sure this will lessen the frank callers.
Arab News reported this issue, last July 4, 2012. [Check here], So starting July 31, 2012, all calls , text message will need to be sent by a registered sim card.
